Disney fans from around the world, it is time to prepare for the ultimate Disney fan event, the D23 Expo returns August 9 – August 11, 2013! The D23 Expo brings together all aspects of the Walt Disney World company for everything from theme park announcements to live performances from the stars of your favorite Disney movies and more! Disney has also announced that over 40,000 guests visited the D23 Expo in 2011 during its three-day-run. As you can imagine this caused several headaches for guests who wanted to attend certain events throughout the weekend and so Disney is promising “expanded capacities at some of [their] most popular venues.” You will be able to purchase your advance tickets for the D23 Expo 2013 beginning August 9, 2012 when they go on sale at the D23 Expo website. D23 Members receive special discounts on tickets to the event but the event is open to the public as well.
